Re: the colloquial sense, "fat or overweight." Its used this way in the Belle and Sebastian song, "A Century of Fakers": "If you ever go lardy or go lame,/ I will drop you straight away." Not sure how to reference something colloquial like this.

lardy

Fat/overweight senses. Isn't it lardo? —RuakhTALK 19:50, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

Nothing wrong with it to my ear. ("Lardo" I had to think about, though.) Bulwer Lytton used "lardiest" in 1867, so I think this is safe to say it is in long-term widespread use. --Connel MacKenzie 15:30, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Tagged but not listed. (Rather, listed but then archived without having been resolved.) Rfv-sense, two senses: an adjective meaning "(colloquial, pejorative, of a person) fat or overweight" and noun meaning "(slang, pejorative) An obese person." - -sche (discuss) 22:33, 24 August 2011 (UTC) - -sche (discuss) 17:24, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

I believe I've cited the adjective sense. - -sche (discuss) 22:33, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
How about citations for "lardies"? Those are quite easy to find. Fugyoo 23:04, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
Sure. It would be nice to have at least one for "a|one lardy", if possible. DCDuring TALK 23:21, 24 August 2011 (UTC)
I saw 'lardies' in numerous Usenet posts, but I thought (like Equinox) that most were puns on or eye dialect for 'ladies']. I also saw hints of a noun meaning "a lardy cake". - -sche (discuss) 00:33, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
Now cited in all senses, including the "lardy cake" noun sense I just added. - -sche (discuss) 01:50, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
